UPDATE: It appears Trade Virtual Services is out of business. Please consider one of these alternatives.
Trade Virtual Services is a small but growing virtual assistant and outsourced marketing company in India. They were founded in 2011 by a couple alumni from another VA company.
The company began sourcing clients on Elance but now collects customer information for personalized quotes right on their website.
Trade Virtual Services is staffed with a team of young, ambitious, and helpful professionals to help you achieve your business goals at affordable rates. They work out of a managed office in New Delhi with the infrastructure already in place.
For services, they offer dedicated virtual assistant packages, SEO service, web design and development, data entry, social media marketing, and more. When I spoke with the co-founder, Vijay, he explained the VA service and SEO packages were the most popular.
You can start with one VA for as little as 5 hours a week, or ramp up an entire team of remote workers. Your VA will work in the time-zone you require and you can communicate via chat, email or phone.
The virtual assistant service is sold at $5 an hour, which is quite low for Indian VA companies, especially at the lower-hour increments. Normally you wouldn’t see that rate until you’re committing to a full-time virtual employee.
Vijay laid out the 3 separate VA plans that have been most popular with existing clients:
- 20 hours for $100/month
- 40 hours for $200/month + 8 hours free
- 80 hours for $400/month + ask about a special bonus
There is no initiation fee or ongoing monthly commitment. You keep your VA as long as you’re happy with the service.

The SEO package runs $200 per month and includes both on-site and off-site optimization to earn the highest rankings possible for your business. With any outsourced SEO service though, it’s important to understand what tactics they’ll use, especially for link-building, so you don’t end up getting penalized by Google.
The Trade Virtual Services website itself is riddled with typos so I wouldn’t be in any rush to outsource any copywriting or proofreading tasks, but for general administrative tasks or online research, I’m sure they’d be fine. Beyond that, you’ll be able to train your dedicated VA in whatever business-specific processes you need done.
